After I made the Crabmeat Purse with White Wine Lemon Butter Sauce, Baby Lady got to thinking. She liked the crepes, especially the purse, but felt it needed a sauce on the bottom so when you cut into the purse you would pull the bite through a nice sauce. I felt the purses were fine the way they were served but… Anyway, after giving it careful consideration she decided she wanted to fuse a little Mexican and French cuisines to come up with this dish. It’s good, too, so we thought we would share. Continue reading Baby Lady’s Chicken Mole Huasteco Crepes

If you can’t tell, the octopus eraser has bothered me ever since I fixed that dreadful meal and I refuse to be beaten by some technical process or a machine. So, determined to learn the process of sous vide with protein, back to the drawing board I went but this time with a little more manageable meat, chicken. As you will see, the result was outstanding.

And now for something completely different, kinda sorta. Continue reading Moroccan Chicken Tagine with Apricots and Chickpeas
Some of my fondest memories are from when I lived and worked in Louisiana. The people of Louisiana and their food mesmerized me and when I think of Louisiana I think of gumbo.
